A Quote by Bewick Cory on life, family, children, hippies, goth, business, fundamentalist, and jesus

It's funny, the way kids grow up.  It seems to me that hippie families grow business kids, and business families grow hippie kids, and Fundamentalist families grow Goth kids, and Goth families grow Jesus freaks.  You can't win the adolescent war.  No sir.  No matter how hard you try.

A Quote by unknown on right choices, friends, and family

No one is perfect so what makes you better then the one next to you? Is it the mistakes they made? Now sit and think about everything you did in your life that you realized or didn't realize at the time was wrong and then ask yourself again the question what makes you perfect. Instead of saying the things to them that reflect on mistakes say things that makes them stand tall for what they did do right.

A Quote by John Powell, S.J. on family, love, relationships, and bejuled coaching

A sense of his or her own worth is no doubt the greatest gift we can offer another, the greatest contribution we can make to any life. We can give this gift and make this contribution only through love. However, it is essential that our love be liberating, not possessive. We must at all times give those we love the freedom to be themselves. Love affirms the other as "other". It does not possess and manipulate another as "mine".
To love is to liberate. Love and friendship must empower those we love to become their best selves according to their own lights and visions. This means that wanting what is best for you and trying to be what you need me to be can be done only in a way that preserves your freedom to have your own feelings, think your own thoughts and make your own decisions . If your personhood is as dear to me as my own, which is the implication of love, I must respect it carefully and sensitively. When I affirm you, my affirmation is based on your unconditional value as a unique, unrepeatable and even sacred mystery of humanity.
In evaluating my love for you, I must then address myself to the question of whether my love is in fact possessive or manipulative or really affirming and freeing. It will help, in this evaluation, to ask myself these questions; Is it more important to me that you be pleased with yourself or that I be pleased with you? Is it more important that you attain the goals you have set for yourself, or that you attain the goals I want for you?

A Quote by j. Krishnamurti on change, peace, self, world, and family

Student: Sir, you said you must change the world. How can you change it, sir?

Krishnamurti: What is the world? The world is where you live - your family, your friends, your neighbours. And your family, your friends, your neighbours can be extended and that is the world. Now, you are the centre of that world. That is the world you live in. Now how will you change the world? By changing yourself.

A Quote by Dan Simmons on human, experience, family, dialogue, hours, and time

She had always felt that the essence of human experience lay not primarily in the peak experiences, the wedding days and triumphs which stood out in the memory like dates circled in red on old calendars, but, rather, in the unself-conscious flow of little things--the weekend afternoon with each member of the family engaged in his or her own pursuit, their crossings and connections casual, dialogues imminently forgettable, but the sum of such hours creating a synergy which was important and eternal.

A Quote by Sufjan Stevens on community, unity, people, and family

We live in community, and we're created in community. We're created out of the unity of two people, and then we're made into a family. It's just inherent in who we are.

Sufjan Stevens
